Info on solving mechanisms graphically

  1. Apr 22, 2010 #1

    I would like to know if there's anywhere I can find information on how to solve problems that deal with mechanisms (1 degree of freedom) using graphical methods, because I couldn't find any.

    Thank you.

    Hm, what exactly are you looking for? Displacement diagrams?

    Only how to find speed and acceleration of the elements of the mechanism, that is applying Newton's laws to solve kinematics (and dynamics) problems graphically.

    Here are some lecture notes, but unfortunately they're in Croatian. But then again, it's mostly "math", so I think you can figure it out.

    The links "Predavanje 6" and "Predavanje 7" should help.
